Tank mates to avoid:  Do not mix them with slow moving small fish such as Neons or Guppies.

Black Tetras is small aquariums:  Because they are so hardy we have seen many people have success with a couple of these in filtered aquariums as small as 6 gallon.  However they look best when they are kept in schools in tanks of 20 gallons or more.

Housing:  Like most Tetras they do best in tanks with some bushy plants to the back and open swimming room in the front.  They stay out front and will not hide.  Provide good filtration and standard water conditions.  (pH 6.5-7.5)
